Hello Eric,

I use resistors from 800 Ohm to 3K Ohm,
depending on the brightness of the individual LED,
and the brightness I require.

If there is too much resistance, the LED will simply not work.

Yes you can make wiring easier.

You only need to use one resistor on any of the wires of the LED,
and resistors do not have a positive or negative wire,
they are just a resistance in a circuit.

Not polarity sensitive...They can be wired in either way.

:apl:
